Workers ravaged by COVID-19. Millions of jobs lost worldwide. An economic recovery that was much slower than anticipated.

The ILO estimates that for every 14 people fully vaccinated, 1 full-time job is created. Is there hope for better jobs after the pandemic? Is it contingent on achieving vaccine equity? And what about the growing divide between richer and poor countries? We speak to Guy Ryder, the Director-General of the International Labour Organization, on In Conversation.
